Mockingjay is Suzanne Collins' dystopian novel, in continuation of The Hunger Game series, featuring the brave young protagonist Katniss Everdeen, in her quest to unify Panem. "If we burn you burn with us" Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But she's still not safe. A revolution is unfolding, and everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans - everyone except Katniss. And yet she must play the most vital part in the final battle. Katniss must become their Mockingjay - the symbol of rebellion - no matter what the personal cost." The culminating novel in The Hunger Games trilogy of novels authored by Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay follows the story of Katniss Everdeen, who has twice survived the brutal and violent Hunger Games. In this novel, she reluctantly accepts a proposal from District 13, the group behind the rebellion in Panem, by agreeing to be 'Mockingjay', the symbol representing the rebellion spearheaded by them, and their president Alma Coin. In exchange, she is assured immunity for all the past Hunger Games' tributes including her closest friends, Finnick Odair, and Peeta Mellark, as well as the sole privilege of killing President Snow upon his capture. To fulfill her end of the bargain, she must participate in a series of films entitled Propos, as propaganda for the rebellion. Meanwhile, the Capitol's secret plan of bombing District 13 comes to light, and the rebels launch their own military strategy against the Capitol, in retaliation. For this purpose, Katniss is sent on a coverup Propos assignment to Capitol, along with her teammates, and Peeta, under the orders of President Coin. However, the assignment in a supposedly 'safe' zone, goes drastically out of control, leading to complete and utter disaster, forcing Katniss to take charge. The book is marked with deadly ambushes, ruthless kills, monsters, and explosions, as the violent combat between the rebels and the Capitol ignites to a feverish pitch, leaving no one safe. How will Katniss' own fate unfold, following the deadly aftermath and the unfortunate casualties of war? Written in three parts, with each containing 9 chapters, Mockingjay is a thrilling novel depicting the physical hardships and moral dilemmas that the primary characters experience, under extreme circumstances. Mockingjay fared exceptionally well, selling 4,50,000 copies in its first week alone. In 2012, it was decided that the book would be filmed in two parts namely, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 releasing on Nov. 2014 and Part 2 is scheduled to release in 2015.
